VFW invites all Americans to celebrate the service of our nation’s heroes

“On Veterans Day we honor every man and woman who has proudly worn the uniform of the United States military. We celebrate all those who have bravely defended our nation from the forces of evil and tyranny, and helped free countries around the world from the grips of despair. 

This Veterans Day weekend, patriotic Americans will gather to remember the countless sacrifices our veterans have made. As we honor them, we should also reflect on the price paid for our victories, as well as the many liberties we enjoy today because of the selflessness of our nation’s heroes.  

Our veterans cherish the values and virtues upon which our nation was founded, and generations have bravely answered the call to preserve them. We owe them so much, and we must not forget the thousands who are deployed all over the world defending our freedoms at this very moment. We pray for their safe return, and the VFW stands ready to support their families while they are away.  

Over the course of America’s history, it has been those who have worn the uniform, those who have tenaciously defended our way of life, who we will be forever grateful to: America’s proud Marines, Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Coastguardsmen, and National Guardsmen.  Today and every day, we thank you for your service. ”

This year, Veterans Day, as designated, will be observed on November 11th.  Because the date falls on a Sunday, persons will also observe the holiday on Monday, November 12.

Listening to friends and family who  served in World War II, Korea, Viet Nam, Desert Storm, Iraq and/or Afghanistan bring us closer to the realities of war.  Many of these men and women lived through such terror we cannot imagine what they faced on a daily basis.  It continues, and our prayers and support should be given to them every day of the year.  If you know a veteran, please say “Thank You for your service to our country”!  Hopefully, someday, somehow, we will be at peace with the world.  Let’s make that our goal.

The employees of Texas America Safety Company and Blog4Safety are very grateful for your service, past and present.
